Matching Your Curtains to Your Room

One of the trickiest things about choosing curtains is matching them to your room and décor. If you don’t have an interior designer helping you out, it can be a daunting decision to make. This is an investment you want to last for years to come and work with all your changing styles, so it’s important you’re comfortable and happy with your decision.

Matching Your Curtains to Your Room

Guide to matching curtains

Here are our top tips to keep in mind when selecting the right curtains for your space:

Which type of curtain do you need?

Sheer curtains: Perfect for living rooms, dining areas and bedrooms. Sheers offer light filtering qualities without compromising on privacy. Made from lightweight materials, sheer curtains are low maintenance and effortlessly stylish.

Blockout curtains: These are typically two layers of curtain. One layer being a sheer and the second layer being a thicker fabric that works to completely block out natural light.

Vertisheers: A multi-functional product that offers the softness of a curtain with the chic appearance of sheer blinds.

What’s on trend?

Black and grey: One of the most popular current trends we’re seeing is the chic combination of black and grey. This is prominent in sheers and blockout curtains but also in the general style and decor of rooms as well.

Neutral: Neutrals, like silver, grey, black, white and cream are also a popular choice, as they complement any style of room with ease.

How to match sheer curtains

Match your sheers curtains to your room by blending them in primarily with the wall colour. Then use stronger colours in accessories like furniture, artwork and rugs.

How to match blockout curtains

If you’re matching sheers and blockout curtains, match the sheer to the wall colour, and the curtains to the furniture or carpet colour – if your sheers are behind your curtains.

If you’re styling a bedroom, matching a bedhead or bed covering to your curtains looks great and can provide a cosier feel, particularly because these rooms can tend to be smaller.
